PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Students at Brigham Young University are getting a $10,000 grant to investigate ways to convert excess heat from power production into electricity.
The money is coming from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
It's one of 43 grants awarded to college students across the country to come up with new technologies that benefit the environment.
College students that are part of the program will present their designs at a national competition in Washington, D.C. Some of the best ideas will be given more money to make further improvements.
BYU's project is aimed at reducing the use of fossil fuels by improving the production of renewable energy such as solar and geothermal.
